Well today my first period sophomore government class was going crazy this morning. I mean wouldn't be quiet and get to work on their review questions. I kept asking them to settle down and chill, but they wouldn't. I never have any issues like this in my class. My kids are awesome, but I was sure they had drinken some crack juice or something this morning. I slowly began to simmer quickly reaching my boiling point and was about to raise my voice at the incessant chatter. One of my girls said "Mr. D just hold on a second" as I was about to erupt.... The whole class stood up and one of my guys told me how much they appreciated me as a teacher and how much they loved my class etc... and he hands me a brand new iPod, they all chipped in on, and bought for me. I couldn't believe it I was in shock... I got teary eyed and was actually speechless, which they responded was the first time ever.... Then I got a bunch of hugs from them and the rest of the day was awesome. I am still floating from them!
